Been training regularly too but today I took my weight and I've lost 2 pounds. I look lighter too. I have been behind on some of my meals as I have not had enough time to eat as much as I need to. I have not been managing my meal times effectively (with better options such as instant oats).
My routine atm is also a bit too taxing when I have not been recovering very well. ICF 5x5. It is not optimal for my lifestyle now, I think I will have to use Advanced novice programme by Rippetoes instead.
I just feel a bit lost with it all. I am 6.5 months into training and by losing these two pounds its set me back a bit even though I hit my deadlift personal best the other day. So, I have gotten stronger in terms of my max deadlift for 4-5 reps. But, my squat is stuck. I can squat 125kg for 5 reps but fatigue has meant that i am missing reps on the second and third set.
It's just tougher now that I'm moving house and starting in a 9-5 now.
Funny thing is, my lifts were getting stronger. For a start I could do 8-10 reps of chin ups with 5kg added on the other day. But, I've just gotten lighter and my squat has gone to **** at 125kg.you know you are burnt out when you are sitting down and feel fatigued. **** this ****, never experienced anything quite like it. Like, I don't feel physically up to lifting. Sorry for the moaning, just perplexed.
I am only at 163 pounds now. So, a bit too light for my liking.
